Welcome to the Steelers Afternoon Drive, our new daily podcast featuring all the latest Steelers news.
Alan Saunders and Zachary Smith are back to discuss all things Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers offense put up 400 yards of offense for the first time since 2020 in the first game following the firing of Offensive Coordinator Matt Canada. The team scored just 16 points in a 16-10 victory over the Cincinatti Bengals, but they executed plays at a higher level. So let’s discuss what is real and what isn’t real in terms of how Kenny Pickett, Najee Harris, Jaylen Warren, Diontae Johnson, George Pickens, Pat Freiermuth and company can operate on offense. TJ Watt talked about how the Steelers controlling time of possession like they did on Sunday could lead to an even more dominant defensive unit. What level can this defense get to if they have the full complement of TJ Watt, Cam Heyward, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Joey Porter Jr., Alex Highsmith and company…and they’re well-rested? Trenton Thompson has filled in as well as anyone could ask in the absence of Minkah Fitzpatrick and Keanu Neal. How do you keep him as part of the picture going forward? Let’s talk about Diontae Johnson’s touchdown that wasn’t and his effort on Jaylen Warren’s fumble to wrap it up. Hop in and let’s go for another Steelers Afternoon Drive!
